I really want to nurse my son longer, but if I don't get help soon we may end up weaning. Around 10 months old my son's latch started getting bad, but not too bad. At some point though it got worse, much worse. Now he leaves deep teeth marks (from his top teeth) every time he nurses. Sometimes it so bad he makes me bleed. Right now we are dealing with it by only nursing a few times a day (mostly before bed and first thing in the morning). His side laying latch is slightly better than other positions.
We have tried, lots of differant positons, showing him how to open his mouth, relatching over and over and over, tilting his head back, going "back to basics", & getting rid of sippy cups (but it was only short lived).
If I can't get it better soon I may just pump so that he can at least have breast milk in a cup for a while longer. My biggest concern is anti-bodies. He seems prone to colds and minor illnessess and I can only see it getting much worse once he is weaned!
